Fruit sellers in Kathmandu

During my stay in Kathmandu in January 2006 I did a great deal of walking. I found that this was the most effective way of getting a feel for the city, its people and its culture. On several occasions on this blog I have written about the vast array of shopping opportunities in the city. (click here)

Wherever you go in the city you will find street stalls selling all kinds of food. Many use a simple bicycle for transport of their wares, often converted to a stall in some way by using a piece of wood or a box to help store the items for sale.

As shown in the photo, bananas are a common item for sale. Bananas in Nepal are often far superior in taste to those we can buy here in South Australia, but not as nice as those I tasted in Thailand. Mandarins in Nepal seem to be excellent in quality also.
